Description Philippe Wittenbergh 2010-01-12 16:36:37 PST
Safari/WebKit running on 10.6 fails to use some font-weights when specifying font-weight lighter/bolder. The 'Medium' and 'Ultra Light' faces are particularly affected.
The cascade displays correctly on Gecko based browsers.

Testcase: cascade: nested font-weight bolder/lighter.

Actual results: the last two lines display with the same face
Expected results: the last two lines display with different faces

In bug 6484 comment 31 a little hack was introduced to work around a 10.5 bug with the same font (<rdar://problem/5781372>). It is coming back to bite ?

Screenshot, WebKit latest on the left, Minefield latest nightly on the right (Firefox 3.0.x, 3.5.x and 3.6rc display the same).

I'm not sure; iirc, this was working much better on 10.5.8. I can't verify that at the moment, though.

It looks the same in Safari 4.0.4 on Mac OS X 10.5.8.
